Barack Obama: champion of the little people

John Fund at the WSJ:
Barack Obama's San Francisco-Democrat comment last week – about how alienated working-class voters "cling to guns or religion" – is already famous. But the fact that his aides tell reporters he is privately bewildered that anybody took offense is even more remarkable.
Earth to Barack: Not everyone has been subjected to a Marxist upbringing and education, but I'm sure you're working on it.
Democrats have been worrying about defending Mr. Obama's highly liberal voting record in a general election. Now they need to fret that he makes too many mistakes, from ignoring the Rev. Wright time bomb until the videotapes blew up in front of him, to his careless condescension towards salt-of-the-earth Democrats. Mr. Obama has a tendency to make such cultural miscues. Speaking to small-town voters in Iowa last year, he asked, "Anybody gone into Whole Foods lately and see what they charge for arugula?"
On my sole venture into Whole Foods, I wowed the crowd with "Damn right I want plastic." They did look like a bunch of Obama wimps. This guy is so far out of touch with regular folks that he couldn't find them with a road map.

There's more in the article, but I particularly liked:
In 1999, he was the only state senator to oppose a law that prohibited early prison release for sex offenders.

Mr. Obama also backed a total ban on handguns, a move his campaign now says was the result of a rogue aide filling out a questionnaire. But Mr. Obama's own handwritten notes were found on the questionnaire, calling into question the campaign's version of what happened.

Wotta guy - he trusts sex offenders, but doesn't trust average folks. And lies about it when caught out.

Friends of Barack Obama: Jodie Evans

Ben Johnson at FrontPage Magazine:

IF THE MEDIA WERE COMPETENT, THE NAME JODIE EVANS would be as well-known as Jeremiah Wright.

According to Ralph Nader’s Public Citizen, Evans has bundled “at least $50,000” in donations for Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign. “Bundling” is a process in which people turn over a large number of “individual” political contributions as a group, in the hope of exerting greater influence if their candidate is elected.
And who is Jodie Evans? A former political appointee of Jerry Brown during his tenure as governor of California and his presidential campaigns, Evans briefly made headlines in 2003 by arranging for women to claim Arnold Schwarzenegger groped them. However, she has kept lower company for the last few years. Her official biography states “her life has been consumed with Codepink: Women for Peace since September of 2002.”

In fact, Evans is a co-founder of the antiwar radical groupCode Pink with Medea Benjamin. As I reported at the time, Evans and Code Pink delivered $600,000 in cash and supplies to “the other side” in Fallujah in December 2004. Rep. Henry Waxman, D-CA, signed the letter to get them to that city, a recent battlefield and stronghold for terrorists killing American soldiers.

Ah, for sheer treason and terrorist loving, there's nothing that can beat the Pinkies. There's more about Code Pink in the article, but Jodie has been a busy girl elsewhere too:

As Jean Pearce has noted on FrontPage, Evans is also institutionally tied to Mike Roselle through as a Director of the Rainforest Action Network. Roselle is the founder of the domestic terrorist organization Earth Liberation Front (ELF), “which along with the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) is ranked the No. 1 domestic terrorism threat by the FBI. The FBI attributes over 600 criminal acts and $43 million in damages to the two groups since 1996.”

Now she has found a new champion: Barack Obama. If he has any sense of decency, Obama should repudiate Evans. At a minimum, he should return her bundled contributions.

I'm not holding my breath since ole Barack says he can't "disown" any of his terrorist loving pals like Jeremiah Wright, but it does raise the question of what these hard core leftists and terrorist sympathizers find so appealing in Barack Obama.

It is significant that Obama, his lapel stripped of any American flag pin, is a magnet for anti-American radicals like Evans, Wright, and domestic terrorist Bill Ayers. Obama’s platform for near-instantaneous withdrawal from Iraq has increased his stock with Code Pink volunteers and, undoubtedly, their Iraqi counterparts. When those who hate this country need a domestic political front, they know who to call on: the Party of Defeat. Following Obama’s instructions, Jodie Evans has placed her “hope” in him. She longs for Americans to buy into his vapid elocutions and meaningless platitudes. And she is willing to put their money where her mouth is.

Can you say "He's one of them"? I knew you could!

More reason to be bitter, fellow hicks

If we weren't bitter hicks with all that tacky guns, God and patriotism baggage, we would be courted by the Democrat party bigs like this - Party Girl: Chelsea Clinton Cuts Loose With 2,000 Gay Men in Red Dresses
Yes, Chelsea Clinton made it to the infamous "Red Dress" Party.

Not to be confused with that other annual "Red Dress" fundraiser, this is the "Red Dress Party," a mondo-alcohol-fueled dance party where nearly 2,000 gay men in various states of red dress undress (and several nearly naked straight men as well as one very colorfully decorated naked woman) invade a warehouse in Northeast Portland and dance their collective asses off to pounding disco music and the incredible Storm Large and her Balls (they were beyond fabulous). Large, a bigtime Obama supporter even dedicated one of her more infamous songs, Ladylike, to Chelsea's mama.
Unfortunately, Chelsea was only there for a photo-op and did not engage Ms. Large in fisticuffs, mud wrestling, or competition disrobing. And in case you were wondering, yes, the Clintons do pimp Chelsea out.

Create your own Obama logo!

Mohammed Obama
Obama Kool-Aid
Obama poop
Some rather naive Obama supporters have set up a site called logobama where you can create your own stylish Obama logo with a picture that you provide. Predictably, the comedians have been enjoying it as you can see from the above. Think of it as speaking truth to snobs, er power.

Fun with Barack Obama, the snob

The best way to deal with the pretensions of the swells in the Democrat party who claim to know what's really good for us little people is to laugh at them.

Très chic, dahlings!

Snob Barack Obama
You simply must have one of these posters for when the Red Diaper Baby comes through the servant's entrance to entertain your closest friends at a soirée in your fabulous Billionaire's Row mansion!
